If these financial numbers hold up for the Big Ten, this is not looking good for the ACC and especially the Big 12. The Big 12 provided comments last month the Big Ten TV contact negotiations could impact decisions the Big 12 makes if the Big Ten scores big on new TV contract. The Big 12 could be in big trouble since the current rumors have the Big 12 not expanding this summer which obviously has much to do with money.

If the Big Ten is rolling in money and the Big 12 can not afford two more teams, the Big Ten could be in a great position to make a play for both the University of Texas and the University of Oklahoma in 2026 when the Big 12 GOR expire.

It makes sense from a controlling standpoint to keep the college football playoff with four teams and allow the power leagues to split into pods and have semi and final conference made for TV championship money and almost ensured conference winner reaching the four team playoff in football.

The future "Big" could look like the following someday:

Pod 1: Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Iowa

Pod 2: Wisconsin, Minnesota, Northwestern, Illinois

Pod 3: Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue, Indiana

Pod 4: Ohio State, Penn State, Rutgers, Maryland

With these type of financial numbers, it would be an easy decision for Texas to drop the LHN and become part of the BTN.

Once you read enough of Freaked's articles about how these P5 schools are managing to run up huge Athletics deficits, it becomes apparent that this new-found money has probably already been spent !

I don't object so much to spending on some new facilities, but they will all engage in a zero-sum game of escalating coaching salaries even further into the stratosphere. And nobody at the schools benefits from that.

These deficits are just more reason to make the leagues consolidate and more hungry for additional revenue sources to cover this ever ending cost to be competitive.

If the Big Ten could land Texas and Oklahoma, the SEC could very well make a play for Notre Dame and North Carolina to split into pods.

The four pod system in a 16 member super league would provide yet another two game in semi final conference games to provide this insatiable appetite for additional revenue sources.

The SEC would look very competitive with the Big Ten taking Oklahoma and Texas with balancing out the following four pods:

Pod 1: Notre Dame, Kentucky, Tennessee, Vanderbilt

Pod 2: Texas A&M, Missouri, Arkansas, LSU

Pod 3: Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi, Miss State

Pod 4: Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina

As usual, you make a lot of sense, Lash. I wonder whether UNC and UVA would move without NC State and Va Tech?

I think they are willing to move due to the giant financial gap that is going to exist between the Big Ten/SEC and everyone else, including the ACC. The trouble will be fighting the legal battles and state budget politicking that will no doubt ensue. If the Big Ten and SEC both want in those states then they need to strike a bargain with each other that puts UNC and UVA in the Big Ten and NCST and VT in the SEC.

This is a very good article on Big Ten history and some warning sighs on what college realignment may be doing to college sports.

Is ESPN dropping the Big Ten? http://sports.yahoo.com/news/espn-abc-b ... s1fUhjFA--

Maybe the windfall for Big Ten sports will not be as large as everyone assumed. What network would pick up the other half of the Big Ten? NBC?

Could ESPN have a negative impact on Big 12 expansion plans and ACC network startups?

ESPN may be wise to be providing a low figure to the Big Ten for the other half of Big Ten tier 3 rights.

Where else is the Big Ten going to go to have cable access? Will FOX come back and pay for the entire rights of the Big Ten? Probably not the same as the first because FOX has to pay the Big 12 and Pac 12 for half of their rights as well.

ESPN at minimum is going to have to start paying he ACC 45 million additional dollars after July 1 and possibly much more if the ACC network becomes a startup.

ESPN is most likely looking at figures of how to help the Big 12 with expansion and turning the LHN into a profit.

The Big Ten may be important to TV, at the end of the day it just another power league that has some good fan bases.

The Big Ten can only provide some many games and for the most part only Big Ten fans are watching the non important Big Ten games.

If the Big Ten games are on the BTN, FOX, and maybe ESPN, there are only so many Big Ten fans to go around.
